The Last Taboo.
Great article in Mother Jones about the population problem.
All political and economic systems will fail unless this problem is addressed. We encourage people to conserve and have a low carbon footprint. But those resources will just be negated by population growth.
At present, we still control our population via overuse of resources, war and the misery of poverty and disease. Capitalism and socialism both have this situation, the endless political debates are pretty meaningless until this issue is addressed.
We regulate who can drive, who can immigrate, what drugs one can take, who you can have sex with, what guns you can own, how much wealth must go to the government. But we can't regulate population growth? How insane society is.
